It's the least they can do, right?
One part of the clip the creators of the film talk about is the expanded role given to Barbara Gordon in this film--which is encouraging, especially given the comic's treatment of her character and the history there. In order to expand the story into more of a full-length feature film, The Killing Joke is going to add their own prequel to the movie for the audience to spend more time with Barbara Gordon.Read More

By now, you know that there is a series of variant covers that DC Comics is putting out across all their titles in June to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of their most popular villain, The Joker (like the one above by Javier Pulido for Catwoman #41).

Allow Us To Explain
Now that March is nearly upon us -- less than 24 hours away, actually -- it's obvious that many of us are excited about The Hunger Games coming to theaters in just about three weeks. But one of the major elements of Suzanne Collins' trilogy is how exceptionally ordinary the protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, is. She's just a normal girl, thrown into a horrible situation, and then she handles the crap out of it. She sends a message that fantastical superpowers aren't all that necessary if there is a battle afoot. Even an epically huge, life-or-death battle that concerns the welfare of a country, a planet, or even a universe. This week, we're talking about Katniss' predecessors -- superheroines of geekdom who don't wear costumes, nor do they have superpowers. Some of them might be barely educated or inexperienced, some of them are wildly smart. But what they all have in common is that if you have them on your team in a fight, you will win. Hands down.Read More
